Change a word in multiple filenames across drives/folders

Postby Isac » Tue Jun 07, 2022 8:42 am

I have many files which include a misspelled word in the filename. I need to change the misspelled word to the correct word, without affecting the rest of the filename. My problem is, the files are scattered across multiple drives (4) and there are many of them. Is it possible to use BRU to do this? Much appreciated for any help - Thanks

The easiest way, IMO, is to find the files using Everything.
Once found, select them & drag them into BRU.

So if your word was, "missespelled", you would search for that in Everything, select them, drag them - no matter where they may be, into BRU, then 3:Replace, Replace: ssesp With: ssp.
